That time-honored tradition of college hazing is back in the news, as the director of Florida A&M’s band (yup, bands haze) has been fired after one of the band members died in an incident that is thought to be hazing related. Details about the death aren’t yet known, other than the 26 year-old band member was complaining about not being able to breathe on the bus after a game, then vomited and passed out.
Hazing has been depicted in films throughout the years, most often in movies about college life or the military. And while sometimes it does cost the involved parties their lives (indirectly), nothing depicted on this list ever caused a death (save for A Few Good Men).
See for yourself.
After getting kidnapped by some gentlemen in a molester van, the pledges from Old School engage in some trust exercises, but not before they get screamed at by Will Ferrell and reassured that at least one of them is, in fact, his boy. To demonstrate the trust, they tie bricks to their wangs and toss the bricks off the roof of a building. All the bricks hit the ground safely and without incident, but Weensie’s passes through a manhole cover, presumably ripping off his weenus, but only after pulling him to the ground, which probably should have killed him.
